To what extent can a company refer to a third party trademark when promoting its own goods or services, particularly if such reference may erroneously lead consumers to believe there is a link between the two entities?
Andrée-Anne Jeansonne and Caroline Jonnaert published an article on this question in the last issue of Les Cahiers de propriété intellectuelle. Based on the conference presented by Caroline Jonnaert last January, this article presents the grounds of an action based on extended passing off and its application in Canadian law.
